ST. PAUL (AP) -- Gov. Tim Walz, delivering his second State of the State address via the internet, implored Minnesotans to work together to fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Walz says the state is building hospitals' capacity, increasing testing to track the spread, adding ventilators and trying to find more personal protective equipment for first responders.
